Nuggets from “An Urgent Call to a Serious Faith” by Dave Hunt

Paul encouraged Christians to believe, in the midst of persecution and martyrdom, that:

“…our light affliction [suffered in this life on earth], which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians:4:17-18)

No one can either refute or improve upon that statement. Everything we now see is temporary. None of it has existed without beginning, nor will it last forever – but our invisible souls and spirits will. We must therefore make our choices and plans in this life in preparation for the next, recognizing that our visible bodies are only temporary housing for our invisible souls and spirits. These latter are indestructible and will continue to exist eternally after the body dies and is finally dissolved in the grave. Thus, the most solemn question anyone can face is this: “Where will I spend eternity?”
